Yoke Wood - SOLD, East Sussex - Approx 7 acres, £49,000

Yoke Wood - SOLD
Yoke Wood - SOLD
East Sussex

A conifer wood with great access and of manageable size in the High Weald.

A young and healthy conifer woodland, with sweet chestnut and birch along the edge helping to provide extra privacy. The access is through a locked gate and along a byway (which is bumpy but accessible by car) and then another locked gate. Once inside Yoke Wood, you will first be surrounded by very tall Scots pine, well-spaced and admitting lots of light. Further into the wood, and across the old and interesting wood bank, there is a section of Corsican pine (see our blog on tree identification). The wood slopes gently to the south east.

An owner may well want to gradually make a clearing with the possibility of using any felled pine as wood fuel. Some of the pine trunks are intriguingly curved, thought to have been caused by intense wind pressure (the ‘87’ hurricane perhaps) when the trees were very young. On the south west side of the wood is a cleared corridor for a minor power line, bringing lots of afternoon sunlight into the wood, and giving easy access by foot along its whole length.

Yoke Wood is a very manageable size and lies within Limekiln and Park Woods which is a large woodland area in the High Weald. Deer are occasional visitors to this and the surrounding woodland.

The nearby 17th Century Boars Head Inn is well worth a visit, and just 2 miles away, is the Sussex town of Crowborough, which in the late 19th century was promoted as a health resort based on its high elevation, the rolling hills and surrounding forest. It was known, at that time, as “Scotland in Sussex”.

The purchasers of the woodland will be asked to enter into a covenant to ensure the quiet and peaceful enjoyment of adjoining woodlands and meadows.

Maps

Directions

  • From Tunbridge Wells, take the A26 southwards, towards Crowborough.
  • After about 5 miles, immediately after a 30mph sign, turn left at the sign for Boarshead. ( If you pass a garage on your left you have gone too far).
  • You are now in Boarshead Lane. Almost immediately turn right, go past the Boarshead Inn and go along the narrow, winding lane for about 1 mile.
  • On your way along this lane you will pass a ‘Woodlands for Sale’ sign, but keep going until you get to a second ‘Woodlands for Sale’ sign, by a single bar metal gate, and a metal sign with a white disc and red circle. (This indicates a public byway, but only open to authorised traffic, including the owner of Yoke Wood).
  • Park at this gate but please do not block the gate or the lane.
  • Walk up this byway (passing a single bar dark green metal gate on your left) and after about 500 meters from the road, on the left, you will reach a single galvanized metal gate.
  • The entrance to Yoke Wood is through this gate with red markings indicating the boundary on posts.
